Sunday is daddy-in-the-kitchen day. Otherwise, we eat out. Not last night though. My hubby cooked pork steaks and I made a side dish of oven-fried potato chips.
Both the potato chips and the pork steaks were seasoned with mixed dried herbs that I discovered at the supermarket a couple of weeks ago.
The nicest thing about these herbs is that the bottles are actually grinders — you know, like pepper mills except that they give you a coarser grind. You just hold them above the food, upside down, and twist.
There are several mixes too. For instance, there is one recommended for chicken (sea salt, dehydrated tomatoes, thyme, oregano, powdered garlic, sage, marjoram, basil and rosemary) which I use for pork and beef as well. The one recommended for pasta, I use for rice and potatoes too. The salt content is rather scarce so I prefer sprinkling the food with salt first followed by the mixed herbs.
The mixed herbs in the bottle-grinder is a product of Spain and the company is called Carmencita.
